Good on you, coach.

Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino has released the following statement in response to “Papa John’s” being dropped from the name of Cardinal Stadium on Friday:

“In light of recent events, I am pleased that our university has made the correct decision to remove “Papa John’s” from the name of our stadium. Our football team and our city all promote environments of inclusiveness. The university’s quick action to rename our stadium has only reaffirmed its commitment to such inclusiveness. I applaud their decision.”

It’s been very cool to see this week that Petrino has been both willing to let his players speak up about an issue that means a significant amount to them and then back them up publicly.
